    I need a very small linux to run LMS on PC

    Is anyone running LMS on a PC with a very small linux operating system.
    I have a 1.0 ghz, 2gb ram on a 2gb flash drive.
    I have tried puppy Linux but cant get LMS to run on it, it installs but wont run.
    What small OS will run LMS.
    Any ideas please.
    Thanks

    I'd consider running from a small SSD as LMS really benefits if the database is on such a drive. Does the machine have a HD drive bay?

    The bigger flash drive is not possible as pc is a thin client and flash soldered in.
    I have another with 4gb but that is promised to a mate.
    I run daphile now but its not open source so I cant adjust jivelite settings like I can on pCP so 7" screen is far too small to read easily.

    Won't it boot from USB?

    The thin clients have 4 usb bays but they boot up much faster if on internal flash.
    I still need a small fast boot linux OS preferably not bloatware and it must run LMS.

    I suppose the USBs aren't USB3. If they were it would pay to boot from a USB3 SSD.
    I run Vortexbox on an 80GB SSD - that doesn't have a GUI and is out of date Fedora wise but LMS performance is very very good.
    I would stick to a mainstream distro such as Centos or Debian which I'm sure you could fit on 80GB
